Default Elephant Ear Peppers

I just wanted to Thank everyone for mentioning the Elephant Ear peppers. I grew them last season and they did well...I loved them!


My only problem is finding seeds for them.


I saved seeds but I planted a bunch of different peppers close to each other so they might be crossed.


I definitely want to grow them this year.


If anyone knows a good seed source please tell me!

Try searching for seeds under the name” Slonovo Uvo” elephant ear is the English translation of the original name of these peppers.

Thanks Karen


I'm surprised that this variety is not more widely available. It did great for me!

I grew a seed crop of Elephant's Ear last year under isolation, and would be happy to send you some. Just PM your address.
